Add-On Licensure Program IN Special Education K-12

Cato School of Education

HybridAvailable Evenings

To be the most effective teachers in the classroom, teachers must be able to successfully teach all students. Specifically, teachers teaching students with learning disabilities and documented special education requirements. All teachers, but especially teachers certified to teach students with special needs must have a deep understanding of their social, emotional and cognitive needs as well as the skills necessary to effectively deliver a curriculum that meets their complex and diverse needs. Teachers must be aware of seminal legislation and policies guiding special education instruction as well as keep abreast of current trends and issues for best practices. Candidates will examine research-based strategies which can be applied in today’s schools. Both the theoretical and practical application of these instructional strategies are examined. This program is developed to align with Standards for the Council for Exceptional Children, North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards, and Standards for Graduate Teacher Candidates.
